QVCC Coming Events

Quinebaug Valley Community College has several coming events in November and December, which are open to the public:

Covid Vaccinations – Receive your 1st and 2nd doses, as well as boosters (Moderna, Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson). Tuesdays 9 am – 1pm and Wednesdays 3 pm – 7 pm in the Fireside Lounge on the Danielson campus. No appointment needed. 742 Upper Maple Street, Danielson, CT

Veterans Connection Photo Exhibit: Running until November 26 – The Veterans Connection photo exhibit began in the fall of 2014 to recognize and celebrate the QVCC faculty, staff, and community members who have served or have loved ones who have served in the United States military. Featured in the exhibit is a missing man table, also known as a fallen comrade table. This table is reserved to honor our brave and selfless American military members who have perished on the battlefield, those who have not been returned to us after being taken prisoner on foreign soil, and for those who went missing and have not found their way back home. The Veterans Connection photo exhibit, which is open to the public, will be running until Friday, November 26. Community members are invited and encouraged to visit.
